Dave,

You do well with hitting nice clear notes with good timing. I did notice some omission of damping on Lesson 5a, the thumb damps a couple notes in the second half that I did not see you do.

Here are mine.. finally!

I've been slacking, and need to practice more!

All comments and especially suggestions for improvement are appreciated. :)
Hi David, it sounded pretty good for slacking. :shock:
I sometimes miss using finger 4 when reading the sheet music.

:bravo: Bill

great job especially on Dionsia. very good timing and you got the damping down well i thought.

Barbara :bravo:
Thank you Barbara :merci: the damping is a bit challenging but I hear my string harmonics when I don't damp other strings as well too. So that has forced me to take on the challenge of damping right out of the gate. I am guessing the harmonics are more pronounced because my guitar is a little bit cheaper made for beginners. Thanks Bill

Thanks Barbara! I appreciate the feedback. I am struggling with that one, both with damping and with using (#4) fingers as indicated. I will watch the damping.

Hi Ben,

Good job on "Lo, Nous Marchons Sur Un Etroit Chemin." It sounds very clean! Only thing I did notice was that in measures 5 & 7, the second two notes (both 'A') are played as eighth notes when they should be quarters. All four notes in those two measures (low A, A, A, A) are quarter notes..

Thanks,

Dave

Thanks, David. You are right, I screwed up there. I don't know why, but I get "camera fright" and have a difficult time paying attention to what I'm doing when I record something.

Hahaha!! :D I get the same thing.. I'll play the piece flawless (well, my version of flawless, a term I use VERY loosely!) until I hit RECORD, then it all goes downhill :)

We're ALL going through it. Some more, some less. I think it's safe to say we all loosen up over time.

Is anyone else having a difficult time with leccion 5a on the bottom of page 19? My fingers are blistered and I still can't get it down.

Me, tough I admit I didn't practised this one enough, I can't perform all that dumping properly. But now I'm following his advice, playing it slowly first, counting out loud.

I have some questions:
Should we play what is written or what Mr Delcamp plays? At "LO, NOUS MARCHONS SUR UN ETROIT CHEMIN" he's using his i-m fingers instead of his thumb.

How do I even play a 'rest stroke' with my thumb? It feels strange.

What do you use to rest your left foot? I didn't find that thing to support the guitar on my leg,

Sometimes, when I'm playing rest stroke, I played a random note on the 1st string, let's say a F, then I have to play a note on the 2nd string, for instance a D. It is much more intuitive to use the same fingers (right hand) to play both notes, why must we always alternate?

Hi Antonio, I just fixed your video link (you'd used Yahoo tags instead of YouTube :wink: ).
